Motherish: Laura Rock Gaughan Reading

The women who populate Laura Rock Gaughan’s debut story collection, Motherish, veer from playful to distraught, reckless to restrained, anchored to unmoored. Gambling grandmas, athletes and organists, pregnant bus passengers and punitive bank tellers are pushed to the brink by Gaughan’s distinctively precise prose, while they grapple with what it means to mother and be mothered. Laura will also be teaching a class on Writing Mothers on Saturday, May 11, 10am-12pm.
